StoneGable’s Christmas Foyer is merry, bright and sassy this year! There is nothing quiet or serene or “all is calm” about it! Our home is full of bright traditional colors this year with a big does of sassy and classy black! I’ve particularly loved decorating with these classic colors and fun Christmas elements this season. Welcome to the foyer! It’s a preview of what to expect throughout most of StoneGable. Come on in and take a peek…
Here’s a look at the foyer and through to the dining room. I’m standing in the living room to take this picture.
And here is a look at the foyer and through to the living room. I took this picture from the foyer.
A vintage inspired laundry basket holds some of our gift to be opened on Christmas morning!
A lit garland entwines its way up the stairs. I hope you will come back December 22nd and see my Christmas Night Tour! I’m so excited to be a part of this. Only candles and tiny lights will illuminate StoneGable!
A galvanized metal trough with a chalkboard face is filled with low candles, greens, stars, ornaments and a few pinecones!
Instead of writing on the chalkboard I used my Cricut electronic cutting machine to spell out Oh Holy Night. The letters are backed in magnetic sheeting so they stick to the galvanized chalkboard.
It’s a tradition in our home for the “kids” in the house to sit at the top of the steps and and wait till Daddy goes downstairs to see if Santa has come. Our kids must have their teeth brushed, faces washed, hair combed and beds made before they sit on the top steps.
The grown ups come down stairs and make coffee, turn on the tree lights and get out the cameras. I have years and years of pictures of my kids on these exact stair steps every Christmas morning! We take a group picture of the “kids” just before we let them down the stair.
Here’s 2013’s Christmas on the stairs picture! From bottom to top: niece Kelley holding Scamp, Christopher in the background holding Beau, Abby, Jonathan and Jacqueline. Notice the jammies? Every Christmas Eve our kids open one gift… new pajamas!
Last year the kids were at the in-laws. This year everyone is home for Christmas. So I’ll take more “Christmas on the stairs” pictures!
I just can’t help sharing a couple more pics!
This was Abby and Chris’ first married Christmas together… and Beau’s first Christmas too!
Jon steals a Christmas kiss! This year they have been married 8 years! They got married right out of college!
Thanks for walking down memory lane with me!
My foyer and main stairs holds so many fond Christmas memories!
